Jubilee paint is ready to use out of the container. Stirring (not shaking) the paint is necessary for the pigment to be evenly distributed before use. For best results, surfaces should be cleaned well and free of any dust, dirt, grease or oils before applying and we always recommend doing a test patch before completing an entire project. Refer to our full Jubilee guide here for more information on how to use Jubilee paint.
Jubilee paint is a water-based, flexible formula that can be used on a multitude of surfaces including: wood, glass, plastic, metal, canvas, paper, plaster, pottery, stone and card. It can even be used on fabrics and is machine washable on a cold, gentle cycle. Refer to our full Jubilee guide here for more information on what surfaces you can use Jubilee paint on.
Jubilee is a quick drying formula and is touch dry in less than 2 hours and ready to re-coat in 4 hours. Refer to our full Jubilee guide here for more information on how long it takes for Jubilee paint to dry.

No, Jubilee is formulated with a built in sealer so it is not necessary to wax or seal the paint after drying.
Jubilee does not require a primer on most surfaces. However, if applying Jubilee directly to very glossy substrates such as glazed tiles or ceramics or on top of an oil based product such as a solvent-based paints or varnishes, a primer may be necessary for better adherence and longevity. Refer to our full Jubilee guide here for more information on how to prep your piece before using Jubilee paint.
Jubilee is ladened with high quality pigments for excellent coverage and smooth finish. When applied evenly and depending on the colour used and the surface being painted, a 60ml jar will cover 1-1.5 square metres; a 250ml tin will cover 4-6 square metres; and a 500ml tin will cover 8-10 square metres. Even though our coverage is amazing, two coats are usually better than one for perfect, flawless results. Refer to our full Jubilee guide here for more information on what size of Jubilee paint to buy.
Jubilee paint carries the industry's lowest possible VOC rating meaning it is very safe to use indoors, is odour free and contains no harmful solvents or chemicals. Jubilee is also EN-71 certified meaning it has been tried, tested and approved for painting children's furniture and toys.
Yes, Jubilee paint is waterproof once dry and works well for a multitude of outdoor surfaces including metal, wood, masonry and PVC. Furthermore, our durable formula is UV and weatherproof so colours stay vivid in harsh sunlight, it withstands heavy rain and keeps your project looking fresh and beautiful.
Jubilee paint is designed to be ‘ready for use’ straight out of the pot so thinning should not be required. However, if a thinner consistency is desired, fresh, clean water can be used to thin Jubilee.
No, It is not a traditional matt finish but has a slight sheen on most surfaces due to the built in sealant; however, it is not quite as shiny as a satin finish.
GILD Acrylic Paint
The GILD acrylic range is a decorative paint formula that works exceptionally well on non-porous surfaces such as hard wood, plastic, metal, glass, stone, ceramics and leather. They are also suitable on many porous surfaces such as soft wood, paper, textiles, dried flowers, and card.
Once dry a wax is not necessary to seal the GILD paint; however some users have used water-based varnishes, natural waxes or clear epoxy resin over GILD for aesthetic reasons or added durability.
GILD acrylics are ladened with high quality metallic pigments for excellent coverage and a rich, smooth finish. Depending on the surface being painted, a 30ml jar will cover 1 sq. metre (or 16 x A4 sheets of paper); a 60ml jar will cover 2-3 square metres; a 125ml tin will cover 5-6 square metres.
GILD is touch dry in less than 2 hours, ready to re-coat in 4 hours, and is fully cured in 8-12 hours.
The GILD Gold works extremely well on fabrics and can be machine washed in a cold, delicate setting. The GILD Silver, Champagne, Bronze, Copper, and Rose-Gold paint can be applied to some fabrics but with these colours we recommend using a fabric painting medium, a fabric primer, or a thin layer of PVC glue as a base coat first for best results.
GILD Chrome Paint
GILD Chrome is a remarkable oil-based formula (while GILD Acrylics are water-based) that achieves a mirrored finish on non-porous surfaces. This innovative formula was created to achieve a chrome finish with an easy brushable application. It is perfect for detailing objects made from glass, metal, ceramics, plastics, sealed wood and other hard surfaces.
GILD Chrome is a wonderful alternative to achieving a chrome finish without the need of an airbrush. It is a very fluid formula that should be mixed well and painted directly onto a non-porous surface with a brush. A small amount of paint goes a long way so it is best to not overload the paintbrush when painting. Instead it is best to do several thin layers, allowing coats to dry, and layering accordingly to get the desired results.
A sealant over the GILD chrome paint is not recommended as most sealants can disrupt the mirror quality of the finish and dull the shine.
A primer is not necessary for covering non-porous surfaces; however if wanting to paint a porous surface such as soft wood, card, or foam, a primer to make the surface non-porous is necessary to achieve the mirrored- chrome finish.
GILD Chrome is touch dry in less than 4 hours, ready to re-coat in 12 hours, and usually cured in 24 hours, depending on the thickness of the layers and the total area covered.
